Royal HaskoningDHV to upgrade Milaha shipyard

Royal HaskoningDHV has been appointed to develop plans to upgrade the 40-year old shipyard including a new, larger floating dock, enhanced workshops and improvements to cater to the introduction of new services.

“The phased upgrade plan for our shipyard is being done to support our business strategy and to increase the shipyard’s market share in four diversified target market sectors, all with minimal disruption to the ongoing operations at the facility,” said Milaha’s president and ceo Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai.

“When completed, the shipyard will have an increased capacity and efficiency in handling ship repair works of larger and more complex size, will enhance the focus on the industrial business support and ensure a world class solution for all its clients.  “

The upgrading is expected to start early next year with completion by Q3 2020.

Since opening in 1978 the yard has repaired around 8,000 vessels.
